Thomas Scott Edgington was born on February 10, 1932 and passed away on January 22, 2021. He served as chairman of the Department of Pathology at Scripps Clinic while also directing his basic research laboratory at the Scripps Research Institute. He formed a vascular-biology unit, drawing members from several Scripps’ departments who, collectively, generated a mountain of highly original and fundamentally important observations over the years. Edgington loved life and lived it well. He will live long in the minds and hearts of his family, his many friends and colleagues, and the more than 70 postdoctoral fellows he trained.
Dr. Edgington served as President of the ASIP in 1989-1990, and was the 1995 recipient of the ASIP Rous-Whipple Award.
